 I think weak moderation !!!. .... Bring back Erdinc.!!

 

 i just looked Erdinc up - blimey he was a bit strict wasn´t he?? {#emotions_dlg.wtf} he seemed to be deleting threads all over the place including a joke thread because of ´low´ language or something (it was a turkish joke translated to english)

Erdinç was a great contributor to this site.

 

did I say he wasn´t?  I noticed he contributed a lot of very helpful language stuff - quite a bit of which i´ve now bookmarked.  It just looked like he was an überstrict moderator.

Si++ have you been here long enough to remember Erdinc?

True, he was a great contributor, I loved his language related posts or the effort he put into helping us, learners.

However, I too consider him overly strict as moderator. Still, it would be nice to have him back here.

I remember the times when he left but I don´t remember him as a moderator. Slavica had nicely briefed his contributions but strangely I cannot locate that post of her.

Yeah, looking for things here is  a challenge, did you mean this post:

Dear Canli

It was a great idea to open the topic for thanking one valuable member of our community, who is, unfortunatly, not much with us anymore, for everything he has done for us.

Your thread was, as usual, ruined by discussion which has nothing to do with the topic�

�but it didn�t surprise me � I�ve got used to spoiling threads

What really surprised me was the fact that nobody (with exception of Dilara) replied your message. Is it possible that no one has anything to say about the member who gave such a huge contribution to this site? If new members don�t remember him, where are the old members? Is our memory really so bad?

So, let me get back to the topic and remind you whom we are talking about here...

He came to Turkish Class around year and a half ago...

Quoting erdinc:

I´m a Turkish language teacher in London, UK. I have been a teacher since 1996 and I teach Turkish as a foreign language since 2004. I´m also a volunteer moderator on these forums.



...and started...

...teaching us how to learn...

Quoting erdinc:

Vocabulary, basic grammer and the knowledge how to put the words together will be enough for a long time. Pronouncitaion and detailed grammer are the less important things to worry I think.



...giving us lessons...

Quoting erdinc:

The accusative with verbs can be used to translate these kind sentences:
I like swimming. > Yüzmeyi severim.



...examples...

Quoting erdinc:

Examples:
Okulun kapısı > Okul-un kapı-sı > The school´s door door of the school
Denizin rengi > deniz-in renk-i > the colour of the sea



...exercises...

Quoting erdinc:

Now, can you make a simple sentence with an infinitive from your dictionary and a word from list one or two?



...helping us...

Quoting erdinc:

I`m happy to know I can help others by learning Turkish.



...giving us hope...

Quoting erdinc:

I`m sure you will be speaking turkish very well one day. I think you already can speak the basic sentences.



But he didn�t teach us only grammar and language...

Thank to him we learnt about
magandas
arabesk music
living in Turkey
Ibrahim Tatlises
his army experience


As a moderator...

...he was often reminding us to Forum Rules

..and he was a real artist in deleting...

Quoting erdinc:

If a thread or message was deleted and you post again and you say something like ´why was this deleted?´ or ´don´t delete again´ or ´don´t delete´ then it will be deleted because you were not following rule 12.



...and locking...

Quoting erdinc:

You are always doing the same thing and blame me with things I didnt say.
I don´t have to go into these kind useless discussions. I can simply block the argument or delete your messages. For instance this thread is now locked because the use of incorrect argumentative language.



... and sometimes a real dictator...

Quoting erdinc:

No public discussion means no public discussion.



Anyway, his messages were sometimes nostalgic...

Quoting erdinc:

When I look back I think maybe the most happiest times in my life so far where the times I spend long winter nights at home, outside the cold and freezing snow and inside that music, some coffee, a desk lamp and a good book to read.



...sometimes funny...

Quoting erdinc:

I don´t know certain figures on spoken language but probably an educated person could use 10.000 words. I guess Turkish top models use about 2000 words and our politicians use about 1000.



...sometime sentimental...

Quoting erdinc:

A few French songs and a few French movies, where Daniel Auteuil playes together with some nice and sophisticated people, is enough to calm me down after the recent incidents, and it makes me wish I could speak French, live in Paris and do nothing.



...sometimes strict...

Quoting erdinc:

Hello folks,
calm down and move on please. If you would like to continue discussing about what you are discussing you can do so by private messages. Thank you.



...sometimes touching...

Quoting erdinc:

I wish it had been possible to find all the nice things after a while again that I have forgotton maybe somewhere here or generally in my life. There is hardly anything for me that is as irresistible as going after forgotton moments of the past.



...and sometimes sarcastic...

Quoting erdinc:

AlphaF,
thank you for your comments on my translations. Are you missing the old days when we had some killer arguments or are you just bored?



Some of his messages were a real small essays ,other BECAME essays

Many times we disagree with his points of view

Quoting Deli_kizin:

Actually Erdinç, a lot of times i disagree with you or think that you are strict. But today I realized I do forget that you might be what Türkiye needs right now: someone who truly loves the country and tehrefore critizes it, to make it better.



...many times we were angry with him...

Quoting Goodbye:

Offffffff it is truly a man´s world! I was deleted and removed from this site for daring to ask why a moderator had started a controversial post about religion and politics.



...but after his apologie...

Quoting aenigma x:

Quoting erdinc:

Nice username. Very creative.



Thank you



...and some other happenings...

Quoting aenigma x:

Feeling sad . It feels like all the good-will, friendship and respect we had for eachother on this site has been tainted these last few weeks.



...seems we have forgiven him...

Quoting aenigma x:

I wish Erdinc were here....



Quoting sophie:

Oh for God´s sake BRING HIM BACK!



... and sometimes we were even making fun with him...

Quoting Kadir37:

Erdinç, ara sıra bara gelir ve iki bira içer, gider.
Erdinç, iki bira içti ve gitti.
Erdinç, iki bira içtikten sonra gitti.
Erdinç, iki bira içtikten sonra bardan ayrıldı.
Erdinç, bardan ayrılmadan önce iki bira daha içti.
Erdinç, en son geçen hafta sonu bira içmişti.



One day he decided to leave us...

Quoting erdinc:

Greetings,
I wanted to spend my time on this website on more peaceful things so I asked for the changes. Bye.



Quoting erdinc:


Greetings,
I need more time and peace for other issues. I should be writing a thesis instead spending too much time on the internet...
... Sometimes you need to give up something for something else.



Quoting erdinc:


Unfortunately, for the fortcoming months, I have less time to spend than I used to in this website. Cheers.


... and he did

But during his stay with us...

...he posted almost 2000 messages , mostly about Turkish language and grammar;

...he gave a huge contrubution in lesson part...

...thank to him we have:

The Big List of Online Turkish Language Sources and related websites

and

list of Links for Turkish Literature ...

He also made amazing little stories for beginners, about Ayşe and Bert , showing us, among others, his talent for drawing...


...and his translations of songs and poems became a part of TC Turkish Poetry Section...

So...

I�m sure that most of you agree that he deserves a big




Dear Erdinç, thank you once again for everything you did for this site and all of us. I wish you happy New Year, filled with inner peace, professional prosperity and personal happiness.

Oh, and I do miss Canli as well. I liked her a lot. Did not agree with her on religious matters but really liked her.
